What NEUREPIOMICS Is About?
Welcome to NEUREPIOMICS, a course on “Epidemiology of vascular and brain aging in cohorts with large scale imaging and omics data”. This summer school aims at providing extensive training in cutting edge research methods of neuroepidemiology. A large part of the course is dedicated to cutting-edge brain imaging and novel “omics” tools and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging. This course will be taught by highly renowned international experts from across the world. It is intended to be strongly interactive with practical demonstrations.
This course is mainly designed for post-doctoral fellows and more senior researchers who have an interest in moving into this field, as well as PhD students specializing in this domain.
The number of participants is limited to 40. For capacity reasons, the organizational committee will possibly close registration early if the maximum number of participants is reached.
What you will learn at this course?
Up-to-date overview of modern epidemiology of the most common neurological diseases
In depth description of innovative high-dimensional MRI markers of brain aging in large population-based cohort studies
Cutting-edge brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging
Large-scale genomic approaches (GWAS, Exome and Whole genome sequencing approaches), as well as epigenomics and metabolomics approaches for neurological diseases
Systems biology and translational approaches will be discussed
Challenges and opportunities of planning new studies in the “omics” era, including translational, lifecourse, and e-cohort approaches.
“Hands on” for analyzing and visualizing omics data and cutting edge brain imaging
One to one interaction with international experts
An editor’s guide for submitting papers on neuroepidemiology with large-scale imaging and omics data for peer reviewed journals
The present course is being organized by Prof. Sudha Seshadri from Boston University and Prof. Philip De Jager from Harvard University and the Broad Institute. The second edition has been designed in close partnership with Prof. Stéphanie Debette and Prof. Christophe Tzourio from the University of Bordeaux. Please note we alternate host site locations between Boston University and University of Bordeaux.
We look forward to welcoming you in Boston!
